Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see who were the best and worst performers after the match.


Lucky Nguzana: 7/10

He was lively in attack and caused a few problems for the Sundowns defence with his speed and skill. He scored his side's opening goal with a volley that bounced into the top corner.

Albert Mothupa: 7/10

He worked hard in his central midfield role and created a few scoring chances for his team-mates with his accurate passing. He also had a few shots on goal which went narrowly wide.

Wayne Arendse: 6/10

He started a little poorly and was at fault for the opening goal when he lost his marker. However, he made up for it by controlling the centre of defence after conceding. He also pushed his team to drive forward in attack and found the equaliser after heading home at a corner kick.

Gaston Sirino: 7/10

He was lively in his attacking midfield role down the flanks. He was a constant threat in attack for the Baroka defence, using his speed and skill to work dangerous balls into the box. At times he often found himself in space, but his shots narrowly missed the target.

Percy Tau: 8/10

As usual, he was a constant thorn in the side of the Baroka defence. His pace and skill caused numerous problems for Baroka’s defence, but his finishing at times was not at its best. Nonetheless, he provided the pin-point cross which led to his side's equalising goal and then found the winner with a clinical finish in the second half.

Sibusiso Vilakazi: 8/10

He provided the creative spark in the team which led to their comeback. He provided numerous scoring chances for his team-mates and also provided the assist for the second goal after some sublime individual skill. He was awarded the man of the match for his efforts.


Rhulani Sidumo: 5/10

He did not provide much of a threat in his attacking midfield role down the flank. His crossing into the box was poor, as was his passing, which saw him waste possession. He was substituted early in the second half.

Khutso Mohwatseleng: 5/10

He was not at his best in his left-back role and was often beaten by the likes of Vilakazi and Sirino. He was largely at fault for conceding his side’s second goal.

Mduduzi Mdantsane: 5/10

The central midfielder struggled to control the middle of the park and was outclassed by the likes of Kekana and Mabunda. He also struggled to create scoring chances for his teammates from midfield.

Khama Billiat: 5/10

While he managed to create space for himself in attacking areas, his passing and finishing was not up to scratch and he often gifted possession back to the opposition.
